Cornmeal Dumplings

I’ve made dumplings more often than I can count, but I’ve never made Cornmeal dumplings so I thought I would give it a try – I’m going to put them on top of a stew in a slow cooker, but you could use them in any stew or soup I’m sure.

Cornmeal Dumplings
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
seasoning to taste:
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1 tbs oil

Mix together dry ingredients until completely blended.stew 001

Mix togther oil and milk, then pour into a well in the centre of dry ingredients.stew 002

Drop by spoonfuls onto simmering stew and cover, cook for 30 minutes without lifting lid.stew 003

Result:  These were good and had an interesting biscuity texture, not like the fluffy plain flour dumplings I usually make.  The next time I try them I would try it with a finer ground cornmeal as I think the texture would be even better like that.stew 004stew 005
